I'll go along with everything else that has been posted so far and Plynkes' illustration should see you right, even down to the European officer that has been almost chopped off.

The Yahoo Group SCW20 is a Great place for a resource on the Spanish Civil War.

There's hardly any difference between the Moroccan Regulars (Regulares de Marruecos) and the Ifni Sharpshooters (Tiradores de Ifni) except for the color of the distinctives which were red and later (1937?) light blue.

The Spanish newspaper ABC has put its issues from 1903 to date online here. Although regarded as a 'right-wing' daily, the Madrid office was taken over by the Republic (Seville by the Nationalists, so there were two opposing issues a day). It's obviously in Spanish, but there are some great pictures and there is a search function to the lower right hand side.

I don't know if it will be any use to anyone, but I've added some SCW notes to my blog. They're packed full of detail and info (perhaps too much), that I've gathered over the years. It is as correct as my research has allowed me to be, but any input is of course welcome.

There's also a three part background history overview on the causes of the conflict, which may also be of interest and which starts here.

It doesn't go into the war itself at present, other than the first few days. I'm pacing myself.  :D

Edit: Due to difficulties with page allowances etc, all the SCW stuff on the Blog has now been converted to posts, all accessible from the index bar on the right.

Thanks for posting that. It is of great interest as is your previous three-part background history. It was one of the posts I found linked through LAF that convinced me of the value of signing on.

Really useful, particularly with the organisations. Thanks for that.

Hi there,

I recently joined this forum when I started reading (and eventually playing) "Chain of Command", using it for the SCW. On the TooFatLardies-Yahoo-Group, there are two lists, both for militia and the Army of Africa. I can't seem to find lists for other troops, though. Does anyone know of any such lists (especially the italian CTV)?

Thanks,
Frank

Hi Frank,

Bearing in mind that CoC hasn't been out long, the SCW lists are still being worked on by the guy who did the two lists you refer to.. if they are the ones I'm thinking about anyway. As you will appreciate, getting them right involves a fair degree of research and if they are to be 'unique' rather than just borrow 'special bits' from the WW2 Army lists, those elements need play testing too.

I can assure you though that they are being worked on as we speak.  :)

There will be lists for the main protagonists for 1936 immediately and not just generic 'Republican' and 'Nationalists' ones... which means that the EPR and the CTV are a little down the line... the CTV being the hardest, as the Italians re-organised between the CTV's deployment to Spain and WW2, so most of the info will need tracking down, rather than being cribbed from the WW2 organisations that can be found elsewhere... even if they themselves are conflicting!  

Obviously if anyone does have links to anywhere dealing with the CTV (in English, Spanish or Italian), which might help in this, please put them up here.

Welcome to the forum btw!  :)

Thanks!

I did not want to rush things, I just figured out I couldn't do it on my own. Maybe I should get the appropriate supplements for T&T or DH and tweek them a bit.

For the CTV, they might share some organisational form with the troops in Abyssinia. No support lists or national characteristics, though.
